Hollywood: 'Candy' holds on

Email

Holloween Candy ($11.80) held off a stretch-long threat from Coalbanks Landing to win a messy six-furlong turf race for $32,000 claimers.

Fifie's Fantasy, the 6-5 favorite, stumbled at the start and was never a factor, finishing fifth. Marrymeonemoretime, the 7-2 second choice, never looked comfortable and was pulled up halfway through the race. She was vanned off and taken back to trainer Mike Mitchell's stable. There was concern over the condition of her left foreleg, according to track officials, but the situation did not appear grave.

Holloween Candy won by a nose in 1:09.99 and was claimed from Doug O'Neill by John Sadler. O'Neill claimed Fifie's Fantasy in a two-way shake.

Holloween Candy won the final leg of a 50-cent pick five that paid $569.20.
